RE: Evacuation Order

Best of luck, Ken, and anyone else affected by this.

For those of you in other parts of the country, pretty much all of western Washington and western Oregon are being flooded. Any pics you see on the news could have been taken anywhere from Bellingham, WA south 300-400 miles to Eugene, OR. I-5 is closed for a twenty mile stretch about 70 miles north of Portland (it's under water) with no good alternate routes because all of the alternate routes are under water, too. US Hwy 101 (along the coast) is closed for a stretch just south of Seaside (about 20 miles south of the Columbia River mouth) because of high water. Amtrak has suspended service north of Portland.
